Power steering belt broken or fell off, or the pump is out of oil. The pump is down on the right hand side (passenger) between the fire wall and the engine. You should be able to see if the belt is still on. Check the resevoir for oil. It is on the same side. It's a little plastic pot with a dipstick. Let me know how you make out.

When turning steering wheel real sharp to the left or right it makes a rubbing sound in the Toyota Camry is that pk


Do you have standard rims and tires? Any variation there can cause rubbing.

Other possibilities

-one of your full lock steering stops has become loose and is allowing a tire to contact the body.

-the steering box is moving in its mountings, allowing too much lock

Car will not start, key will not turn, car hit in back drivers side today sitting still. Car is in netural, cannot turn key or steering wheel


Hiya,
I would say that the impact from the other car has pushed your car forwards and turned the steering wheel a little which has put the steering lock on real hard. You may have to "muscle" the steering wheel in the direction the wheels are turned while trying to turn the key to get it to unlock.

1996 camry le 6 cylinder. cannot get ignition key to turn to start car. gear is in park and have tried adjusting steering wheel


Hi the steering lock could be causing you the problem try turning the steering wheel hard left whilst turning the key and do the same hard right.

it may be hard to turn but you should find once you have moved it slightly it will unlock allowing you to turn the key so dont adjust the steering wheel turn it to the right as if your trying to turn to the right and if this dont let the key turn turn the wheel to the left it only needs to move slightly to allow the steering lock to free the key,

doing the above should solve you problem

give me a shout back if you have any further problems ok

Steering is hard to turn


If it is hard to turn in both directions check power steering pump fluid level. Also with both front wheels off the ground key on engine off, turn the tires manually at one of the front tires and turn with the steering wheel engine off. Check for binding (they will require effort to turn) you are looking for a change in effort.

Steering wheel hard to turn


Either the power steering pump is going bad, or the rack and pinion is going bad.
